Hello Group,
I am wanting HR round stock steel in a size smaller then 1/4"OD and longer then 3.' The Home Depot carries a 3/16" size. The 2 steel yards that I've checked with do not stock anything smaller then 1/4" OD.
What im wanting is 10' lengths or more of hot rolled or similar steel in 3/16" or #8,#10 wire sizes. what should I ask for and where do you go to get it since the steel yards say NO!

Look forward to your suggestions.

TX Mr fixit for the family
Chris :)

You are looking for "wire" or "coiled wire" here is one source-

It can be had straight or in coils,I recommend coils since it's cheaper to ship.

A simple manual straightener can be built or just stretch it with a Comealong.

In those smaller sizes a lot of places also call it "nail rod". You can also look for cold finish or 1018 rod in h=the size you require...
